Islamabad - Pakistani cricket legend turned politician Imran Khan has married a faith healer, ending rumours that he was considering a third marriage after divorcing two wives. 

Khan's Pakistan Taherik-e-Insaf party announced on Monday that the 66-year-old Khan has married Bushra Maneka. 

The party released pictures of a smiling Khan, showing him sitting with his new wife. 

Rumours about Imran Khan's third marriage started circulating in January. 

Khan has been divorced twice, having been married to socialite Jemima Goldsmith and journalist Reham Khan. 

Maneka is a divorcee who comes from a deeply conservative family. Khan has in the past sought her out for spiritual healing. 

Khan acquired a reputation as a playboy and ladies' man during his international cricket career.
